the country's capacity for self inflicted damage must have astounded even osama bin laden and points out there is always a nightmare of acquiring use -- terrorists acquiring and using these weapons of mass destruction that nothing would give them greater satisfaction that we focus obsessively on the remote possibility and restrict our lives and our liberties accordingly. guest: i think this is always a difficult debate. i think if we step back and look at it, since 9/11, the united states even though we are one of the most open and free countries , has remained, frankly, open and free. we continued to have super bowl's and people travel abroad and robust trade with our allies around the world. so this type of limited action, i would use the analogy of it is like a hurricane. forecasting weather a potential storm and we're battening down the hatches and a few limited places. if the storm passes, great, but this administration is leaning forward and a way i think is professionally responsible and they are being advised not just by political advisers but also the cia -- one of my old agenci
. obama and his administration love to brag about the killing of osama bin laden but they're not willing to acknowledge that osama bin laden is a product of the muslim brotherhood. president obama went to egypt in 2009 right at the beginning of his presidency to talk about religious tolerance and how we all need to live together and egypt was the gateway to the muslim world for a better relationship and now that christian churches are burning he's not standing up for christianity in the way that he should be. >> let me show you something. i should have thought of this earlier. this is from "the blaze" today. this is john kerry today. that's john kerry. he's kite boarding. do you ever go kite boarding? i don't even know what that is. there is our secretary of state. he's kite boarding and president of the united states is out there swinging a golf club every two seconds. >> don't forget in this day, the president can sign a law in boston. he can sign an executive order in california. he can sign a law -- so when he brings with him an entire apparatus when he travels. >> egypt is burning a

: a few years back when the hunt for osama bin laden was still raging, some intelligence forces believed al qaeda was even developing its own intranet that was electronically hidden behind jihadi websites and accessible to only a few people. whether they succeeded or such a system still exists like much of the communication structure remains shrouded in mystery. tom foreman, washington. >> of course the great irony using so much american innovation to try to destroy america. >>> our tourt fourth story outfront, dr. sanjay gupta changes his mind on weed. 20 states allow medical marijuana. and the medical community seems to be changing its mind on pot. but you know, not everybody is. a lot are adamantly against it. but there is a dramatic turn around for dr. gupta who just four years ago wrote an article for "time" magazine titled why i would vote no for pot. the ground breaking new documentary airing this sunday on cnn. and in it, he explained why he changed his mind. sanjay, the fda says marijuana is harmful, we know that. michael bloomberg is quoted saying medical marijuana is the great
his 2012 reelection campaign. he said the war in afghanistan is ending. al-qaeda is on the run. osama bin laden is dead. mr. obama has also claimed that al-qaeda's core leadership is decimated, and who can forget during the first presidential run in 2008 when he vowed to root out al-qaeda, close guantanamo and improve america's moral stature around the world. then the drones came and the world sees us as merciless. merciless is what we should have been a long time ago in this conflict. new strategies and double talking generals reduced warfare to an academic exercise, shape shifting and parsing above the gravity of the enemy's threat, playing the stump master with slogans, anything to avoid saying outright what the average american knows. terrorists are alive and waiting for the big jihad payoff. why shouldn't they be when in 2009 the president announced that he was adding a token 30,000 u.s. troops to our afghan force at the same time he revealed his plan for a phased withdrawal. this was a courtesy to an al-qaeda and taliban actors who now had an expiration date for america's war. o
the state department has issued a worldwide travel alert for americans, it's the first since osama bin laden was killed. it warns terrorists may elect to use a variety of means and weapons and target both official and private interests. that warning in effect through august. security is also being increased across the u.s. out of what authorities are calling an abundance of caution although they say there is no specific threat to the homeland and joint chiefs of staff general martin dempsey says the threat is specific and serious. >> a significant threat stream and we're reacting to it. >> is the threat to employee up an embassy, a consulate or something else? >> that part of it is unspecified, but the intent seems clear. the intent is to attack western, not just u.s. interests. >> now, the focus is on the al qaeda branch in yemen where experts say the terror group is on the rise. we have complete coverage for you. nbc's kristen well kearse at the white house and nbc news foreign news correspondent richard engel is in cairo. what's the latest there. >> reporter: i'm still struck by that map

. that is more grief than osama bin laden? i don't think so, rush. coming up. why the north carolina governor thinks he can give cookies to his opponents after lying to them in the campaign and signing a new very restrictive abortion law. the governor crossed the street, carrying a plate of cookies and reportedly told a woman "these are for you, god bless you." protesters placed the plate of cookies back at the mansion gates with a note reading governor mccrory, we'll take women's health over cookies. protesters say governor mccrory is breaking a promise he clearly made on the campaign trail last year. >> this past year, state lawmakers passed the women's right to no act, adding legislation making it more restrictive to get abortions in north carolina. if you're elected governor, what restrictions on abortion would you agree to sign. i'll start with you, mr. mccrory. >> none. >> all right. joining me now are elise hogue, i wonder why would the governor in that debate give such a clear answer, if this is what he was going to end up doing. what was he thinking back then? >> you know, i think he
for osama bin laden. miss potress is still working on the third installment in that trilogy which is about u.s. surveillance of phone calls
of two men from yemen including one who was a driver for osama bin laden. miss poitras is still working on the third installment in that trilogy which is about u.s. surveillance of phone calls and e-mails and so on since 9/11. she posted a bit of that one last year on "the new york
of building seven. now that osama bin laden is dead and 911 is a decade behind us and more, i think a good argument can be made that the documents that the federal government has regarding the 911 attacks should be declassified and the truth will come out. host: you have to distinguish between those two things. bradley manning did leave an awful lot of classified information. evidently, it went to wikileaks and i think the court was correct in deciding it was not guilty of aiding the enemy because he had not directed that information to the enemy and that is what the statute says. that is how military justice rules agreed. with regard to the rest of it, i think it is clear that he did, in fact, leaked confidential information that was classified and therefore, he got punished. many people do great things sometimes get punished for them. i think back to the civil-rights era and help congressman john lewis was punished over and over again for acts of courage. this countryrs because the security system, the intelligence community and the military defense complex, military-industrial complex h
qaeda master spy. you will see in a few minutes the kinds of things he did for osama bin laden and al qaeda. the other fel is yousef, the two principal members of the new york cell that executed the first trade center bombing. he designed the 9/11 plot. a bomb maker trained in wales. a genius, criminal genius came up with the original hoping to knock tower one into tower to, only to have that accomplished essentially on 9/11. hal i got -- from the terrorism story to the mob story in has to do with an extraordinary event that happened in 1996. i have a cough drop in my mouth. i will put it down on the table because i probably sound like at marbles in my mouth. they captured him and rendered him back to new york. he is in the federal jail lenore manhattan and he is in cell number one. cell number three, if you will, is more thought, the original pilot. there were planning to execute the plot to take the towers down in 1995. a fire in the bomb factory. he fled islamabad with his uncle. he was captured, rendered back to the u.s. he escaped only to go on and bring the towers down on 9/11.
the global jihad foundation, obviously, shift more when osama bin laden took over and 9/11, but are we seeing now both disciples came together and sort of shared the same ideology? zawahiri, have we seen the shift towards a new approach to globallied had, or are we going to see -- global jihad? are we going to see more of cybersecurity issues, cyber wars that he's going to try and develop in al-qaeda, and now is it going to affect u.s. policy. >> want me? >> do you want to? >> yale, i'll go. we've -- yeah, i'll go. i think the big analytical mistake is to think that's not part of their global designs or doesn't assist them in waging global jihad. case in point in yemen, instituted a political platform under ansar al-sharia. and basically, this was there attempt to say that we can provide governance and basic services to you and that we can start, basically, you know, adopting parts of sort of, you know, the hezbollah or hamas model, we're going to ingrain ourselves in the committee and build up our own sort of governing model. the associated press recently came out with the head of the al-qae
their safety concerns in this case and look at what the president has done, he is responsible for killing osama bin laden, using ground strikes to decimate al qaeda, building on the policies of the bush administration regarding torture. host: judy is next, idaho, good morning. appreciate the call. caller: i have two things to say. the first is quick and for your producers. you read almost all twitter tweets these days and hardly any e-mails. it is very hard to express a complicated idea in less than 200 characters. i wish you would pay more attention to the e-mail. host: ok. caller: to the subject at hand, i take the present threat seriously. but not as seriously as they wouldn't if these agencies had not been a exaggerating and combing length the effectiveness of their programs and the thoroughness -- i think they have undermined their own credibility by doing so. i wish they would stop it so that we would know when something should be taken seriously and when it should not. host: judy, thank you for the call from idaho. at can join the conversation facebook as well. george says -- host: chris
this or you are on the side of osama bin laden. but the media didn't expose this for really what it was at the time, and then you move on to the war in iraq, and, again, i -- i mean, i sound like a broken record, repeating some of the stuff that snowden is saying, but at the time, all of that talk about all of the lies we heard from the bush administration, it was the job at the people at that white house briefing to kick the tires and challenge the assertions, and get us the truth, and they never did. they never challenged weapons of mass destruction, to point out -- we didn't find out there weren't any until we invaded the country. >> yeah, it was too late. >> bill: everybody repeated this mushroom cloud crap from condy rice, as if it were true. and colin powell talked about this mobile missile launchers that they have -- he even had a drawing of them, that they could move ash the country, the whole thing. and didn't exist. and there were voices at the time, there were former un inspectors at the time, who were saying we haven't seen any evidence of weapons of mass destruction,
in the 1980s in afghanistan when we armed the mujahadeen, now known as al qaeda, osama bin laden and others. that principle that was applied then was the enemy of our enemy is our friend. that's bad foreign policy. we should not be applying that in syria but we should be engaged in every possible way. i mentioned the russians a little while ago and in every possible way to get this under control. yes, hezbollah is tied up in this. the future of israel is tied up in this. we want israel to survive and prosper for everything it stands for but we also want -- >> time, sir. holt: we want a peaceful solution for palestinians in the area. what is going on in syria affects that. >> thank you, sir. madam speaker. oliver: i believe if the united states is to maintain its position as a world power and to dominate as a world power, it is incumbent upon us to pay attention to what is happening in syria. you know, it was very sad that we did not intervene and save more lives in rwanda and i know that there are many people in the international community who know that the united states could have done mor
of osama bin laden come of the president's reelection campaign and you may know her from her great work with the politics team at usa today and the managing editor of the american journalism review. next to rachel is jen pendry and who is not on your program. originally we were going to have an al jazeera reporter here but she has gone over to the mainstream and is now working for cnn, making her ineligible for the panel. so jen kindly agreed to step in and we appreciate that. she is the white house reporter for the huffington post and covers leadership on capitol hill. she joined huffington post a couple of years ago and spent years covering the legislative and executive wrenches of government for "rollcall." probably a walk in the park for her because she started covering the texas state legislature. again, stepping in for camille, so thank you for that. next to jen is john stanton who also has "rollcall" roots rate he is the chair of buzz feed here in washington. then smith, the editor described him as a reporter's reporter with being in his veins. he's a third-generation news man an
and where that person is. if osama bin laden had been calling someone in the united states on their cell phone, i promise you it wasn't a stockbroker. we better know because these people are still plotting against us, and not if but when they strike again, the american people are going to turn to us and ask us, what has the federal government been doing to prevent this? we better have a good answer. because we live in a very dangerous world, one, by the way, where our enemies aren't just other countries anymore. our enemies are rogue states and their well-armed militias and radical clerics. this kind of danger calls for a clear strategic vision on foreign policy and this president sadly does not have one, which brings me to my third and primary concern about ms. power's nomination and it is one that is related to the united nations itself. we need an advocate in new york who makes it their primary focus to ensure that the united nations is more accountable, that it is more effective and that it efrbs u.s. interests and -- serves u.s. interests and is not a multilateral ideal in which we
